An Exmouth beach restaurant has been named among the best coastal cafes/restaurants by the sea in the UK.

In a list from the Good Food Guide, a total of 23 were named, with Mickey's Beach Bar & Restaurant being included.

Two other Devon establishments were also featured in Britannia at the Beach in Kingsbridge and Cafe Ode in Shaldon.

On the Good Food Guide page it said: "Summertime eating by the sea is surely one of the life’s greatest pleasures.

"These cafes, bistros and seasonal shacks - all within a salty kiss of the coast - are coming up trumps for good, unfussy food and atmosphere.

"Order fish and shellfish as fresh as the sea breeze, and while booking might be advisable at some (especially at peak times), we list places that welcome spur-of-the-moment walk-ins too."

What did the guide say about Mickey's?

The first-floor dining area of Mickey's was praised for its views, where you can take in the "splendour of Queen's Drive, the beach and the sea".

The Good Food Guide adds: "It offers a large brasserie-style menu with a thickly applied seaside mood, ranging from mustard-slathered sausage snacks to ice-cream sundaes, via a panoply of pizzas, pasta, steaks in many cuts, cooking styles and sauces, plus some tempting fresh fish.

"A spin on gravadlax sees a carpet of cured salmon dotted with pickled cucumber, capers, salmon keta and contrasting splots of wasabi yoghurt and honey/soy dressing – or there may be a satisfying chicken and ham-hock terrine with green beans, mushrooms and hazelnut mayo."

Other dishes that were recommended include the steak, the monkfish curry and the "bistro-ish" grilled salmon with asparagus in white wine and tarragon.

On Tripadvisor, the restaurant has been fairly well-received with a score of 3.5/5 from 384 ratings.

One reviewer posted: "The GM went over & above to accommodate 13 of us very close to the time of the kitchen closing. We had a fab meal, service was great and she even ordered us some taxis to get home. Will definitely recommend and already planning my next visit. Thank you."

Another wrote: "Visited for dinner at sundown and it was amazing. The service was excellent. The menu was varied. There was lots of local produce. Absolutely amazing spot to watch the sunset in the conservatory part of the restaurant a real good find."
